is a Ukranian band that label themselves as "regressive mathcore/deathcore
" and lineup as:
starts off with an introduction song Whispers in my Head
. Most deathcore bands start off with an atmospheric intro but these guys decide to just blast into the deathcore/hardcore part of their album with this song. This song involves a *** load of chugging and a basic deathcore drum pattern of blast beats, etc. but the real standout of this song and album is the vocalist who has huge diversity from pig squeals to gutturals and growls, etc.
The next three songs are similar but vary a bit but lead into the more experimental side of Dysphoria
which starts off with the song Penguincore's What You Deserve
. It has the same basic structure of the earlier songs but has a whole bunch of crazy dissonant chords thrown in to mix it up a bit. The title song is also a mathy one but this time they've thrown in tapping and bends instead of dissonant chords. This song also involves what sound like constipated shouts but work with the song. After the breakdown it goes back into a more penguincore style bit but then regresses to some more tapping riffs. Pulsing Evisceration
again involves tapping riffs this weird sounding intro riff, harmonics and dissonant chords. This is carried throughout the last half of the album except for the outro which reverts back to the earlier style.
On this album there is a drum machine but live they have a real drummer who plays. The programmed drums don't sound too bad and fit itn quite well with the rest. The best performances on this album though are the guitars and vocals. The guitarists show off some of their prowess later in the album but also have some really heavy breakdowns and chugs. The vocalsit has quite alot of range which is displayed throughout the album.
There are some fairly major downsides to this album though. The first half of the album can become quite repeteive and even thhough the vocals are quite amazing the pig squeals are overused and can sometimes sound like they lack depth and power.
debut EP, Satyriasis XXI
, is good but by no means something that will be worshipped as an amazing album that changed the metal world. It incorporates features of deathcore, mathcore and beatdown hardcore. The first half of the CD is beatdown hardcore and deathcore influenced and the second half is almost entirely mathcore so if you don't like hardcore just skip the first four or five songs and if you don't like mathcore just skip the last four or five songs. Simple as that. It is quite a short listen with 10 songs clocking in at 22 minutes but give it a listen and see what you think. You might like it.
